space where parents are feeling that. And that’s our current situation (in Surrey’s emergency department). In our current situation, our proximities are just too close.” Surrey’s brand new emergency room, opening on Oct. 1, will include a kids-only department where children won’t come into contact with adult patients.

Driving like a jerk in a school zone, and getting caught, can get very expensive. Fines range from $167 for failing to stop for a school bus, failing to yield to pedestrians or disobeying a school patrol guard, to $196 to $253 for speeding in school or playground zones. Car crashes are the number-one preventable cause of death for B.C. residents ages five to 18. Cpl. Robert McDonald, of RCMP traffic services for the Lower Mainland, advises both drivers and pedestrians to make eye contact with one another, to make sure they’re seen. Pedestrians, he said, should also dress to be seen. “Wear bright or light coloured clothing. In dark or bad weather, wear reflective material on clothes or accessories.” “Be aware of parked vehicles in a parking lot or on the road,” McDonald added. “A driver may not see you between parked vehicles and you may not see them moving. Before crossing or walking through a parking lot, stop and look left, right, left, around parked vehicles. Children should avoid taking shortcuts through parking lots.” An 82-year-old Surrey man died in Royal Columbian Hospital this week after being hit by a motorist who wasn’t able to see him because another car blocked his view.

New ER: From chaos to calm Amy Reid Now staff Twitter @amyreid87

A child being rushed into an emergency department is a stressful situation at the best of times – both for kids and their parents. In Surrey Memorial Hospital’s current emergency room, which can be chaotic due to overcrowding, there is always the potential of a child seeing something

traumatic like a stabbing victim. That scenario can leave children and their families feeling overwhelmed, said Dr. Wade Sabados, an emergency physician at SMH. “If I take my kids to a playground and suddenly there’s something that’s not child-focused going on, I feel almost like papa bear, I get quite protective of my children,” Sabados said. “I think it’s really inappropriate where we have a

Bob Bose at Semiahmoo Park, where Surrey hosted a party for its first anniversary as a city in 1994. Bose was mayor at the time. (Photo: AMY REID) was alive and well, despite of all the controversy,” Bose said. “We did an awful lot of good things.” After his mayoralty, Bose returned to Surrey civic politics as a councillor, from 2000 to the 2011. He was the last Surrey Civic Coalition politician with a seat on council until he was ousted in 2011, when Surrey First swept all the seats. Bose said his proudest accomplishments include acquiring a lot of open space for the city. “They were everything from big projects to little ones,” Bose said. Acquisitions under his watch included properties that now make up the Stewart Farm and the Surrey Bend Regional Park, which is nearly as large as Stanley Park. “The most important thing to me is that we laid the groundwork for

what I think is quite unique anywhere in the region in terms of laying out (ecologically) sensitive areas and ecological management systems, which will hopefully serve the city into the future.” And Bose thinks the city should acquire 600 more acres of land. Leading up to the 2011 election, he put a motion to council to do just that, and suggested it go to referendum. The idea never saw the light of day. Earlier in his career, the question of preserving Green Timbers and Sunnyside Acres went to referendum. As a result, the city still has those parks today. “I think that really characterizes that 20 years from becoming a city to today. If I have a regret, it’s that the momentum has largely been lost

because there’s not a political will to carry it on,” Bose said. Bose said Surrey has really grown up. The city now attracts highcalibre architects, he said, of which he is particularly proud. Bose pointed to Bing Thom, who designed the new City Centre Library, which he described as “extraordinary.” He said transit has grown tremendously over the past two decades, pointing to the city’s three SkyTrain stops. Looking into the future, Bose said transportation will continue to help Surrey grow even more. Rapid transit connecting City Centre to the Guildford and Newton communities will be key, he said, adding that he supports light rail. “That will lead to further densification and create more of an urban context in those centres,” he said. Another component that is key to Surrey’s success, Bose said, is switching to a different political system. “While we talk a lot

about neighbourhoods and strengthening neighbourhoods, there’s no spokesperson for those neighbourhoods.” Bose said some councillors should be elected at large, some at the local level, and the mayor elected at large. “After all, you have an MLA representing an area. Why is there not a council member who works closely with that MLA and can speak for its neighbourhood?” Bose said right now, the business of Surrey is development. “I think at some point in the future, the business of Surrey council will be community and that requires a more robust political structure. And I can’t imagine how that could happen without neighbourhood representation.” areid@thenownewspaper.com With files from Tom Zytaruk

090513

From Surrey having one big, blue central computer at city hall to iPads in council meetings, much has changed in the city over the last 20 years. In the same time, the city has seen massive expansion of Surrey Memorial Hospital, major growth in the public school system and SkyTrain has come to the region. Surrey celebrates its 20th anniversary as a city on Sept. 11, and Bob Bose was there for it all. Bose, former mayor and councillor in Surrey, is the son of a pioneering farming family that came to Surrey in the 1890s. He served as a Surrey alderman from 1978 to 1985 and then served as Surrey’s mayor for nine years, from 1988 to 1996. Those were rock’em-sock’em times on council, with Bose leading a slate of four left-wing Surrey Civic Electors council members against five right-wing Surrey Electors Team councillors. Bose said it was tough working as mayor in a minority government. “The council of the day was referred to as being dysfunctional, which I dispute because it was anything but dysfunctional. It was, in fact, I think alive and democracy

FOCUS ON SENIORS FORUM

Last year, roughly 18,000 children were treated in SMH’s emergency department. But starting in October, young patients will be treated in the new 5,500-square-foot pediatric department, the largest of its kind in Canada. Both emergency rooms will be located on the first and second floor of the eightfloor critical care tower and mark the completion of phase one of the hospital’s redevelopment. Sabados said roughly 100,000 patients visit Surrey’s current emergency department a year. With the new pediatric space, patients are taken away from the bussle of a large department. “We’ve created that sense of a smaller emergency department... There’s a sense of calm here,” Sabados said. Treatment rooms are larger and have walls and glass doors – instead of curtains – for more privacy. “Every room has its own television,” Sabados said. “And if your kids are anything like my kids, if you turn on Treehouse, it’s like a general anesthetic. It has a calming effect.” Every inch of space and every piece of furniture has been tailored to children’s comfort as well as their families, such as erasable bedside tables for kids to draw on. Also, a medical imaging unit is steps away so children won’t travel far for X-rays. Even the department’s team has been created to best suit children, which includes

emergency physicians, pediatric-trained nurses and child life specialists. Sabados hopes the privacy and comfort of the new space will stop people from travelling to other hospitals. “This has been a long time coming, we want people to be travelling to us when they’re sick, not away from us when they’re sick.” In addition to these features, the hospital now has a simulation lab and baby. Representing a full-term newborn, the doll can simulate a variety of conditions, regular baby movements and sounds such as breathing, heartbeats and even seizures. Also new for the hospital is a Ronald McDonald House B.C. Family Room. At more than 2,000 square feet, the family room contains four bedrooms, which have a private toilet and shower, where parents and siblings of admitted children can rest or sleep overnight. Lakh Bagri, interim executive director of Surrey Memorial Hospital, said the new emergency department will be the largest in Fraser Health. “The pediatrics specifically, there are a number of services that we offer and will be offering in the future which will cut the time down for families wanting to go to (B.C.) Women’s and Children’s (hospitals) because you can get many of those services right here in Surrey... “More and more we’re trying to keep the care closer to home.” Visit thenownewspaper.com to see photos of the pediatric emergency room. areid@thenownewspaper.com

So far this year, the Surrey RCMP criminal collision investigative team has investigated 20 serious traffic crashes involving eight deaths and 12 people suffering life-threatening or serious injuries. Two of those killed were pedestrians. In White Rock, RCMP volunteers have been tying yellow ribbons of police tape around signposts in an effort to remind drivers to slow down. “Many more children are on the road each morning and afternoon and it demands that all drivers change their driving patterns and be vigilant,� said Const. Janelle Shoihet of the White Rock RCMP. The Delta Police are also patrolling school zones, said Sgt. Ciaran Feenan. “We’ve got a presence out there. We want the kids to get back to school in a safe manner.� The 30-km/h speed limit in school zones is in effect from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and in playground zones the 30-km/h limit runs from dusk to dawn, all year.

The victim was crossing in the 7300block of King George Boulevard on Sunday evening, not in a crosswalk, when the Chevrolet Venture hit him. Surrey RCMP Cpl.

He hadn’t been speeding, and the weather was fine. “The victim pretty much stepped in front of him,� Paquet said.

The B.C. Coroners Service is investigating the death of a 15-yearold North Delta boy who sustained a serious head injury at McCloskey Elementary school. The teen, whose name has not been released, died in Royal Columbian Hospital on Aug. 10, six days after he was injured.

“It’s tragic,� Delta Police Sgt. Ciaran Feenan said. “It appears he may have hit his head during a fall. He was playing with his friends.� Feenan said the “devastating accident� happened on the basketball court at the side of the school, located at 11531 80th Ave. in North Delta.

Police had initially sought witnesses. “It’s not a police investigation anymore,� Feenan said. Barb McLintock, spokeswoman for the coroners service, said Wednesday that the boy’s death is still being investigated and as such no conclusion has been reached as to what caused it. Tom Zytaruk

A swimming pool full of rotten tomatoes to the girl who kicked my stomach at the Newton swimming pool! It hurts a lot.

Rotten tomatoes to the City of Surrey parking enforcement. The property in front of my home is your property. Parking officers patrol seven days a week. Why do you not give tickets to people who park illegally on your property? Angle parking on our street is on both sides, making our street now a single lane road.

LIMITED TICKETS AVAILABLE

A SkyTrain full of rotten tomatoes to TransLink and the Mayors’ Council for wasting more cash. This time, they are wasting $160,000 on artwork for SkyTrain stations. That’s nuts! Better to invite graffiti artists to do the work for free. All this while they prepare a referendum to bleed us for more tax money to waste.

Rotten tomatoes to whoever is stealing things from our yards in our trailer park and the bullies who live in our park who gossip, spread lies and pick on people who mind their own business. Leave people alone and stop complaining about others – maybe you’re the problem. Grow up.

We must keep wits about water ViewFrom TheCheap Seats Michael Booth

FOLLOW WITH

B

read may be the staff of life, but it’s a claim that conveniently overlooks the value of water to almost every life form on our increasingly overstressed planet. Animals, plants, fish and insects all need some kind of access to water just to survive another day, and an absence or surplus of the precious liquid affects ecosystems in dramatic ways. Floods, tsunamis and hurricanes bring devastation while the absence of the stuff is equally traumatic as it leads to droughts, wild fires, famines and disease. Not only does it sustain life, humans have harnessed the power of water to create hydroelectric dams, solved transportation issues with canals, made a desert bloom in Israel, irrigated mountains in Peru, and wowed tourists in

Versailles and Las Vegas with spectacular fountains. All over the world, people’s lives are dependant on their access to water. In Africa, tribes trek miles every day to collect water and bring it back to their villages, just as great herds of animals migrate hundreds of miles in an effort to follow the seasonal fluctuations in the water supply. Here in Canada we are blessed with one of the greatest concentrations of fresh water on the planet – so much so that we take it for granted. Nomadic tribes around the world cherish every drop of water but here in North America, we poop in it and spray it on our lawns in an effort to make our homes look pretty. Fresh water is so plentiful here that we don’t even give it a second thought. This point was driven home last month when it was revealed the province of British Columbia doesn’t have a workable groundwater management plan. The province’s negligence on the topic came to light when it was reported in the Province that Swiss corporate giant Nestlé was sucking more than 260

million litres of water out of the ground near Hope every year to supply its burgeoning bottled water business. And the price this multibillion dollar corporate giant paid for that water? Nothing. Nada, zero, zip, sweet tweet, nothing. That’s not Nestlé’s fault, it’s ours. It’s our own egregious lack of foresight in managing what may turn out to be the most precious resource in a nation rife with natural abundances that allows such exploitation to occur. Never mind the dollars in tax revenue that our cash-strapped provincial coffers are missing out on, the impact of our water mismanagement could be felt for years. For starters, 260 million litres is a heck of a lot of water. An Olympic-sized swimming pool holds 2.5 million litres of water so that translates into 104 Olympic swimming pools being siphoned out of the

local water supply in Hope. It’s not an ocean mind you, but it’s still significant and that amount is being pulled out of the ground every year. Because this water comes from the ground, the cumulative effects of the missing fluid are hard to measure. What we do know is that humans are remarkably dense when it comes to interactions with Mother Nature. We profess amazement when, after years of using the seas as a garbage dump, scientists find massive islands of plastic junk in the middle of the oceans. We are shocked when an oil tanker slaloming through ice-riddled inlets in Alaska finally slams into a rock and dumps crude oil into the environment. We welcome the thought of warmer weather in the northern reaches of the continent because of climate change, conveniently ignoring the starving polar bears that

no longer have ice floes to traverse out to their traditional hunting ranges. And we declare the air pollution problem in Beijing solved when the government there shuts down manufacturing for a couple of weeks in an effort to create picture perfect postcard images of the city during the Olympic Games. Ecosystems are a delicate balancing act and when any part of the structure changes, the effects can be far reaching. Pulling hundreds of millions of litres of water out of the ground does have an impact. The ground water tables are affected, which in turn alters the amount of water that ends up in rivers and wells. Less water in the rivers can lead to an increase in the temperature of the streams, which threatens fish stocks. Less water in the wells increased the concentration of chemicals and fertilizer run off, making the water undrinkable.

When rivers are lower and the volume of water they deliver to the deltas and oceans drops, the salinity levels of the large saltwater bodies rise, making them inhospitable to marine life – including valuable salmon stocks. And these are just the effects seen from removing significant amounts of water from one source. Imagine the impact of multiple operations of this kind in the province, coupled with the environmental costs that come with countless instances of mine tailings, oil and gas exploration, fracking, deforestation, pipeline spills and hydroelectric dam construction. But hey, it’s a small price to pay for the convenience of sipping from a plastic bottle filled with the same water you can get for free from your kitchen tap.

Surrey Board of Tradeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stance on pot myopic The Editor, Re: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Marijuana movement sparks up in Surrey,â&#x20AC;? the Now, Sept. 3. I wonder about the real reasons the Surrey Board of Trade stated its myopic view on legalizing marijuana in British Columbia and maintaining status quo. Might there be a conflict of interest? I wonder this because the board hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been speaking out boldly about revoking the legalization of alcohol. Why arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t they advocating for the closure of pubs and liquor outlets? Substance abuse is substance abuse â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and liquor affects workersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; productivity as much, or more â&#x20AC;&#x201C; than any other drug. My guess is that there are more profits to be found in maintaining the alcohol trade than in prohibition. Many of the photos on the Internet about the Surrey Board of Trade shows people holding alcoholic beverages. So, one can deduce that they help to promote that substance while having no toleration for any new market of pot, even though it would help reduce criminal violence in the black market and provide revenue flow to offset peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taxes. One canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help to wonder if the Surrey

Board of Trade is afraid of change and just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see the bigger picture. Or is it trying to appease some political pundit(s) with its posturing? John Mackintosh, Surrey

Pot statements absurd The Editor, Re: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Marijuana movement sparks up in Surrey,â&#x20AC;? the Now, Sept. 3. Just as logic and common sense is starting to prevail in the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eye when it comes to our antiquated drug laws, you get the conservative ideologue that the Surrey Board of Trade spews forth. Every single thing CEO Anita Huberman said could have been taken right out of the cult classic film Reefer Madness. Her absurd statements have no basis in reality. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fear mongering plain and simple and most people just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t buy that anymore. Nice try Anita. I hope Mr. Larsen is successful in the petition. Brandon Parker, Surrey

Up to

Pot view is hypocritical The Editor, Re: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Marijuana movement sparks up in Surrey,â&#x20AC;? the Now, Sept. 3. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll bet if you interview the members of the Surrey Board of Trade and they told the truth, they know of occasions where they or some of their peers went to work a bit wobbly after a party or a long weekend. Such hypocrisy! One would think that these high-powered individuals would be a little more circumspect. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to see cannabis controlled like alcohol then just say so. Alcohol has caused a lot more social damage than marijuana. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recall a news story with the headline, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Man charged with beating his wife after a marijuana bender.â&#x20AC;? Wayne Underhill, Chilliwack

Transit art has value The Editor, Re: â&#x20AC;&#x153;TransLinkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art budget is obscene,â&#x20AC;? the Now letters, Sept. 3. I usually object to a lot of anti-TransLink

stuff for the sake of being pro-transit, but I am in objection to this particular letter, not because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s harsh on TransLink, but because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pushing a straw-man argument. Public art is a part of what taxpayer money goes into because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of enriching peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daily lives and more. Research has shown public art makes a contribution to the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perception of the quality and value of places, which is an important factor for rates of vandalism. To Samy: if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like investment in public art, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t single out TransLink. TransLink is not acting wildly outside its mandate by investing in public art, and it certainly isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only authority in Metro Vancouver that does so. The city you live in and pay your taxes to has invested a ton of money on public art this year, worth at least $800,000, which youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see in places like the new, upcoming city hall. I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ever seen any outrage over that, and Surrey needs investment in a lot of areas â&#x20AC;&#x201C; like sidewalks, fire stations, rec centre maintenance, and all sorts of things that could be deemed as much more necessary.

NEWS North Delta

Contract negotiations

Slick thieves rip off ring from helpful lady South Surrey Delta Police are looking for a pair of thieves who swiped a 75-year-old woman’s precious ring from her finger in North Delta on Saturday afternoon. The culprits flagged her down, in the 7600-block of 117th Street, asking for directions. They were in a grey car.

This was about 1 p.m. Police said the female thief distracted the victim by placing jewelry in her hand. “The female suspect then grasped the victim’s left hand and in the process removed the ring from the victim’s finger and a watch from her

wrist without her knowledge,” said Acting Sgt. Sarah Swallow. The thief and the driver then took off. The stolen ring has seven 0.9-carat diamonds in a cluster, mounted on a wide gold band. Swallow said the ring is of sentimental value to the victim.

ith municipalities across the Lower Mainland – including Vancouver, North Vancouver, Coquitlam, Burnaby, Richmond, Surrey and New Westminster, among others – participating in city-run food waste programs, one Canadian company has come up with a way to ease the composting process for residents. “The issue that crops up time and time again when you ask people to compost their kitchen waste in order to keep [organic material] out of the landfill is that it can, quite frankly, be a bit of a messy endeavour,” says Carson O’Neill, CEO of Bag To Earth Inc. “But the fact remains that these municipal food waste programs are a good idea. They really do work from an environmental perspective, so our aim is to make it easy and convenient – as hassle-free a process as possible – in order to encourage more participation.” He points to his firm’s Food Waste Bags, made from all-natural materials designed to disappear fully into the earth along with any

approved food scraps you toss into them. The bags, which come in two sizes, are comprised of a paper exterior lined with a patented natural fibre made from cellulose – a kind of “clear paper” that’s been in use for at least a century. “We’ve actually had consumers contact us after looking inside our bags and mistaking the lining for plastic, which, of course, it isn’t,” O’Neill states. “Cellulose is a 100% compostable material that will fully disappear back into the earth, just like the coffee grounds, eggshells, spaghetti sauce and banana peels you put into our bags. In other words, it helps to complete the organic loop.” Plastic bags, even those labelled biodegradable or compostable, he continues, have no place in an organic food waste program, as they actually “back up” the process. “Say you line the green bin that’s in your kitchen or the larger one on your curb with plastic and then you put your organics directly into that plastic for pickup,” he says. “What you end up with is a plastic bag sitting in the city’s compost site and backing it up because it’s a non-compostable material. It totally negates the purpose.” By lining your kitchen and/or outdoor bin with a Bag To Earth Food Waste Bag, however, all of the material – food waste and bag – that’s taken from your home by your municipality will return to the earth in its entirety. The question remains: why would any well-meaning resident put plastic inside a bin, when the contents of that bin are meant for compost? O’Neill says it often comes down to cleanliness. “Leftover food scraps can be slimy and stinky, and even those of us with the best intentions when it comes to the environment may be deterred from participating in a composting program due to the mess,”

“Our aim is to make it easy and convenient – as hassle-free a process as possible – in order to encourage more participation in municipal food waste composting programs”

Bag To Earth Food Waste Bags are made from all-natural materials designed to disappear fully into the earth along with any approved food scraps you toss into them, thus helping to complete the organic loop. he says. “Our Food Waste Bags, however, solve this problem by keeping your bins clean and odour free.” Not only is the cellulose liner in every Bag To Earth Food Waste Bag totally leak-proof, keeping unpleasant smells from escaping is as simple as rolling down the top of the bag and sealing it with a clip or clothespin. Additionally, each Food Waste Bag’s flat bottom means it can either be placed in your green bin or set as a standalone right on your kitchen counter. “When the bag’s full, just run it out and put it in your curbside bin,” says O’Neill. “No need to dump it out; the bag goes right in and returns to the earth completely, from the lining to the tie … right down to the print on the exterior. And, if you wish, line your outdoor bin with one of our larger-sized bags. You won’t need to hose down the interior due to food scraps getting stuck on the sides and making a mess.” Each small Bag To Earth Food Waste Bag, one of which will last a family of four about a week (just enough time to fill and place curbside for pickup), costs approximately $0.50 – that’s just $26 a year. Again, O’Neill emphasizes the fact that “nothing about our Food Waste Bags compromises the composting aspect.” In fact, Bag To Earth relies on the success of municipally run food waste programs. “We follow these programs very closely and regularly update our website with the latest information from across the country,” he says. “Consumers are more than welcome to visit www.bagtoearth.com to find details about their local food waste program, as well as a list of retailers in their area that carry our products.”

Gary Xie may be 17, but he has an ambitious plan to reform British Columbia’s education system. In June, Xie read a news story about the provincial government’s proposed 10-year contract with the B.C. Teachers’ Federation. He and his Semiahmoo Secondary school classmate, Raaj Chatterjee, saw flaws in their own schooling and wanted the government to invest more in schools and educational resources. The two students who live in White Rock drafted a letter with 10 recommendations, including suggestions such as increased funding and allowing for student representatives during contract negotiations. Xie, who started Grade 12 on Tuesday, was one of seven students who took turns running and cycling from Ladner to Victoria in order to attract attention as they delivered a letter to the minister of education, Peter Fassbender, recommending education reforms. “We hope to give voice to these concerns,” Xie said at the legislature. Rob Fleming, the NDP education critic, greeted the group of students and said their effort demonstrates the concern students are placing in their education. “Students are at the centre of education and left out by the government when negotiations or education policies are being made,” Fleming said. “Students do need to stand up and have a voice in their future.”

ife is good these days for Steve Smith, who spent the summer with his wife living on their house boat on Lake Ontario, not far from the couple’s home near Hamilton. “We still have the house about five minutes away, but it’s just neat being on the water,” said Smith, better known as Red Green. “The kids have left home so we’re doing this while we can. It’s a great community of a bunch of people who live on their boats in the summer, so there’s no shortage of people to talk to, that’s for sure.” Smith spent part of his summer finetuning the Red Green show he’ll be touring Canada this fall, starting Thursday, Sept. 19 at Surrey’s Bell Performing Arts Centre and heading east. For tickets, call 1-866-6173257 or visit www.redgreen.com. The solo tour, dubbed “How to Do Everything (From the Man Who Should Know),” is the second one for Smith as Green, following an inaugural theatrical adventure for him in 2011. “This time around, like last time, I’ll be doing Canada in the fall and the U.S. in the spring,” Smith told the Now in a telephone interview. “The title of the tour is the same as the book I wrote, and I’m doing some things that are included in the book, but the lion’s share of what I’m presenting has never been written or spoken before.” Two years ago, Smith played some

upcoming tour. “A series isn’t happening, no,” Smith said. “The thing I like about touring is, I never did it before so it feels like a new career for me, because it’s only been a couple years of this, not 30 or 40. But with television, you know, trying to go back to recapture something that I maybe did better 20 years ago? C’mon. “I don’t have a drive to entertain mass audiences without seeing them,” he continued. “I’d rather entertain small audiences that are in the same room as me. And also, now that we have the internet and unlimited access to anything in the world at any time, live performance becomes the big divide – you were either there or you weren’t there, and the live show becomes more special because of that.” Before The New Red Green Show TV series ended, Smith gave cast and crew two years notice that he was done with it, after nearly 300 episodes were produced. A few years back, he came out of “retirement” with a book called Red Green’s How to Do Everything, leading to the “Wit and Wisdom” tour of 2011/12. “I’m doing this now on the basis of really enjoying what I’m doing,” Smith said. “And people who come to the show can tell. I mean, it’s not a hardship for me to be up there on stage, and I hope people recognize that. As long as I feel that way, I want to be able to do it, but the moment I don’t feel that way, I want to be able to stop. So there’s no commitment to do another tour after this, it’s all about this (tour) right now, and after it’s done, we’ll see how I feel. Same thing goes with the books and whatever else I’m doing. I feel like the best thing I can do for the audience now is to be doing something that I want to do and then let it go from there, let it decide when it’s over.”

and they know dishonest attempts to skew debates via misleading campaigns when they see them,” he wrote on his website. “Equally, Canadian consumers know instinctively that more competition will serve their families well through better service and lower prices.” Moore has said that he remains committed to increasing competition for Canada’s wireless scene. Currently, the Big Three control about 93 per cent of the Canadian wireless market, leaving only six of the country’s 17 providers as actual independent entities. With Verizon’s departure from the debate, Canadians are once again stuck with the status quo. For the unfamiliar, the status quo means Canadians are looking at remaining in the top 10 most expensive countries in the world for the majority of wireless services with some of the highest roaming fees on the planet. And while it may have been premature for so many to be championing Verizon as the saviour of competition for Canada’s wireless scene, the amount of support and interest shown for very notion of another competitor in Canada just shows how desperate we are for any sort of change on the wireless front. Hopefully the Big Three will take that to heart, and come down from their towers to introduce the change that consumers might actually welcome rather than the nickel and diming they’re so used to.

ell, it looks like Canada’s big three telecom s are going to be sleeping easier following the news that Verizon has declared it is not interested in entering the Canadian wireless market after all. The news follows months of an unsympathetic campaign by Canada’s three largest providers – Bell, Rogers and Telus – against Verizon’s possible move into the Canadian market, all of which cited “unfair” competition. However, while the “Big Three” were against the potential competitor arriving north of the border, the general public and politicians were excited about what it could have meant for Canadians. “We’ve heard from Canadians that they are sick of having money pricegouged out of their pockets then spent on a misleading PR campaign,” said OpenMedia.ca executive director Steve Anderson in a release. “We cannot allow the Big Three to continue to block innovative Canadian providers from offering affordable mobile service to Canadians. It is ridiculous that affordable, Canadian providers like Toronto-based Ting are only able to offer their services in the U.S. because they are blocked by the Big Three. The best way to lower cellphone prices and support job creation is to enable innovative Canadian providers like Ting equal access to Canadian infrastructure.” Industry Minister James Moore also had many choice words for the Big Three during their “misleading” campaign. “I think Canadians know very well what is at stake

Sing away the September stress ArtsScene Melanie Minty Columnist

T

his first week in September is one of the most stressful of the year. Back to school means new schedules, more traffic and an end of laidback summer days. It’s stress city, and this annual return to school does affect almost everyone, whether you have kids in school or not. Watch your speed in school zones, be careful of pedestrians – these pedestrians, after all, are still allowed to operate their feet while texting or talking. So they aren’t likely to be paying attention to the big, mean cars. More stress. So let’s take up a new hobby that relieves stress. Sing! Rhayne (sounds sort of like “rain” when she says it) has been singing her whole life, and she believes singing is a very healthy outlet – “very good for the soul.” Rhayne is a professional recording artist and singer-songwriter who is passionate about teaching. She has performed professionally in musical theatre, studied voice under the late great Ralph Cole of The Nylons, and trained in several styles, including opera, adult contemporary, pop, R&B and improvisation. Rhayne has been teaching her popular “Love to Sing” class for many years throughout the Lower Mainland. Her songs have had radio airplay in Canada, the U.S., and Australia, and club play throughout many countries, as well on internet radio. Check out Rhayne’s website at www.rhayne.com. Rhayne is bringing her “Love to Sing” program to Surrey for the first time. Offered at Surrey Arts Centre, the program will run for five weeks beginning Sept. 25 at a cost of $50. A free, introductory session is being offered on Wednesday, Sept. 18 from 2 to 4 p.m. Although the introductory

session is free, participants are asked to register to reserve their spot. Register online at www.surrey. ca/register or by phone at 604-501-5100. This new daytime singing class for adults is certainly affordable. Even better, you don’t need any previous experience to participate. Learn to be a confident singer whether your goal is to sing in the shower, karaoke, with a choir or hope to be a recording artist. Why not? When you learn vocal techniques and secrets used by the professionals, you’ll be amazed at what you can do. Singing with Rhayne, you’ll explore many music genres, including pop, musical theatre, blues, ballads, and rhythm and blues. All you need is an interest in Rhayne’s friendly teaching style, which creates an encouraging atmosphere where everyone, regardless of singing ability, feels at ease. Bye bye, stress. Learning to sing properly, with correct breathing skills, will help you avoid injury, sustain notes and project clearly. “It’s empowering,” says Rhayne, “and it is a lot of fun and a great way to meet people.” Rhayne is also teaching her “Love to Sing” program at Guildford Recreation Centre (604-502-6360), with an introductory free class on Oct. 1, for seniors at Kennedy Seniors’ Centre in North Delta, and for all ages at Fleetwood Recreation Centre (starts Sept. 9, call 604-501-5030 to register). Take advantage of the free class, but you must register first, so do it now. Call for more information and registration for any of the “Love to Sing” times and venues at 604-501-5100. Singing is “easy when you know how” is the last bit of encouragement from Rhayne. I’m taking the class. I’ll be singing with Rhayne so I can be singing in the rain. Check the forecast. There’s lots of singin’ and rainin’ in September. melminty@telus.net

HOWEVER YOU DEFINE COMMUNITY, WE CALL IT AN EASY WAY TO MEET AND CONNECT WITH YOUR NEIGHBOURS. It’s just one of the many reasons residents love calling Morgan Crossing home. It could be at the chalk art festival on Main Street (see below!), or one of the many other events, like movie nights in the summer or resident parties. How about chatting with fellow dog owners at the Morgan Crossing Dog Park, or meeting during a class or workout at Steve Nash Sports Club. Or just hanging out at the coffee shops and restaurants, at a wine tasting at Everything Wine, or on a bench on Main Street. You’ll see and meet lots of the people who live and work at Morgan Crossing… and maybe even ask out your cute neighbour, Amy. Because loving where you live should be about more than just loving your stunning condo (though we have lots of those too!).

Mirage club set to go live on Friday nights Jacob Zinn

Live and Local

Now contributor Twitter @jacobzinn

The Mirage is usually filled with young socialites and popped-collared 20somethings, but the nightclub may soon bring in a different crowd one night a week. Starting Sept. 27, the Guildford-area club will host live rock and pop music every Friday instead of its typical dance and electronic tunes. The shift aims to bring talented rock ‘n’ roll musicians to Surrey, while also drawing both locals and out-oftowners to the club for a top-notch concert experience. “We’ve got a really cool scene in Surrey

Tenth in a series

– it’s about time that there’s a live venue that supports up-and-coming talent and some really cool national and international recording acts,” said Rob Warwick, of Rock. It Boy Entertainment, who is organizing the Friday shows in collaboration with Clyde Hill, of Magnetized Productions.

like it hasn’t had a few in the past. “I remember someone phoned us up and said, ‘Hey, do you want to have Lady Gaga?’” said Fergson. “I went to our DJ and said, ‘Who’s Lady Gaga?’ Now she’s huge.” The guys already have a few shows lined up for the club: The Special Tease performs on Sept. 27 with guests, and country star Karen-Lee Batten performs Oct. 4. Hill previously promoted shows at the Exotica Show Lounge at the Turf Hotel, but he said his focus now is working with Warwick on the Mirage shows.

“There’s a big population around the club and there is a need for live music.” The idea to put on weekly concerts came from Mirage owner Heath Ferguson, who wants to diversify the type of music there. “I saw so much live stuff going on downtown, so that’s when I pitched it to Rob. ‘What about Surrey? Why not out here?’” he recalled. The Mirage has a large dance floor with a second-level balcony around the stage, creating an intimate atmosphere from any part of the club, and a new sound system was installed at the club last year. With new gear and a variety of acts to choose from, the guys are excited to bring some high-calibre artists to the Mirage – not

“Mental Illness often a Byproduct of Concussions” declared an attention-grabbing newspaper headline recently. The effort to draw attention to the often misunderstood subject of brain injuries (of which concussions are a common type) is justified. “Concussion” or even “mild concussion” sounds harmless and, too often, is incorrectly viewed lightly, like a sprain or minor fracture. It’s true that in most cases, a single, first incident of minor concussion – if promptly and properly treated and if given enough time to heal – will heal if there’s no repeat incident. The good news is that some 85% to 95% of people suffering from one uncomplicated mild concussion or mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI), the medical term which describes more accurately what’s involved, recover within six months. But sadly, in a significant minority of cases, even the first, single incident of a mild concussion or MTBI can have severe and long-lasting or even permanent effects. For these 5% to 15% of victims, the positive statistics are irrelevant – though their physical brain injury was “mild,” its adverse consequences can be severe and disabling. Then there is also the cumulative effect of repeated concussions to consider, which substantially

increases the risk of serious adverse consequences. Hockey players, football players and boxers all face the increased risks associated with repeat “hits” potentially causing concussions. It’s not sports players who are hurt the most, however. Car crashes are by far the single most common cause of brain injuries. They account for one half of brain injuries. The rest are caused by all other causes – work-related injuries, falls, illnesses, sports injuries, assaults or fire arms – combined. So what are some of the serious potential effects of mild concussion or MTBI? Depression, a form of mood disorder, often follows a brain injury and can be long-lasting. It can lead to reduced motivation, anxiety, sleeping difficulties and avoidance problems. Because there’s a stigma attached to any mental illness, victims are often reluctant to talk about these issues and their feelings. Concussions may also result in negative personality changes. Victims may become temperamental, irritable, impulsive and irrational, and may exhibit hurtful behaviour, making them difficult to live with. To friends and loved ones, they may seem like a different person. Concussion victims can also

develop persistent cognitive difficulties, such as memory and learning problems, inability to function under stress, speech or written communication difficulties, and problems with executive functions like punctuality, organization, focussing their attention and planning. Other neurological conditions may develop too. After an incident of brain injury, the potential for later multiple injuries increases greatly. U.S. figures suggest the risk of a second injury is two to three times greater than average, and after that the potential for a third injury increases to eight times the normal average. The bottom line is that, in some cases, the cognitive, emotional, behavioural and social effects of a mild concussion or MTBI can severely disable and impact the victim’s life. Rehabilitation and treatment may be needed for many years and require many different specialists, and it can be expensive. It’s important for car crash victims suffering concussion to seek experienced medical and legal assistance. Your lawyer will assess the merits of your case, assemble the evidence, arrange for expert witnesses, prepare your case for trial (if necessary), and obtain appropriate compensation in court or by negotiation of a fair settlement.

The fourth annual West Fine Art Show has special meaning for Murray Phillips, who organizes the event with fellow artist Brian Croft. This year the show is dedicated to Phillips’ longtime wife, Betty, who died of cancer in June. During her final days, Langley Hospice became a second home for the couple, their family and friends. It was Betty’s wish to “live my dying well,” she told her husband of nearly 46 years, and she did.

Artists Brian Croft (left) and Murray Phillips stage their annual West Fine Art Show in Surrey from Sept. 6 to 8.

“Near the end, I told Betty I would like to do a fundraiser for hospice, (and) she wholeheartedly agreed,” said Murray, who lives in the Murrayville area of Langley. “They have been so kind and gracious to us, we need to help so others can experience this kind of care and support.”

Accordingly, part proceeds from art sales at this weekend’s event in Surrey will be given to Langley Hospice Society. The works of 16 artists will be featured at the show, held Friday to Sunday (Sept. 6 to 8) at Senator Gerry St. Germain’s Indian Springs Land and Cattle Ranch, 19339 8th Ave., Surrey. Admission is free; special guests will include Red Robinson and Shell Busey. In addition to Phillips and Croft, the show will feature works by artists Gaye Adams, Craig Benson, June Bloye, Carmel Clare, Brian Coombes, Lalita Hamill, Mark Hobson, Tammy Hunter, Doug Levitt, Esther Sample, Nathan Scott and Joe Smith. Music will be performed by guitarist John Gilliat and the trio Exit 58. The show runs Friday from 7 to 10 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more details about West Fine Art Show, visit www.westart.ca. tzillich@thenownewspaper.com

Surrey Eagles

Ready or not, puck drops Friday Michael Booth Now staff Twitter @boothnow

The summer was far too short for the Surrey Eagles, but that’s the price you pay when you embark on a deep playoff run that takes you all the way to the semifinal round of the Royal Bank Cup national championship tournament. Eagles head coach Peter Schaefer had to rebuild on the fly this summer and the proof of his work will be on display this weekend in the B.C. Hockey League’s annual showcase event in Chilliwack. “We only have five or six guys returning but we are still a veteran team,” Schaefer said. “We have a lot of players who may be new to our team but they’ve played junior before on other teams and in other leagues. We also have some good young guys coming up so we’ll try and install some of the systems we used last year. “It’s a long season and there will be teams gunning for us because we are the defending champions, but we’ll be ready for that. Guys need to be ready to play every night because there won’t be any off nights for us.” The BCHL showcase event is now in its second year and has proven to be a big success with hockey scouts. The

format brings all 16 teams in the league to Chilliwack for the weekend. Each team plays two games with the points counting in the regular season standings. The aim of the event is to make the league and its players more accessible to college recruiters and pro scouts, who can view every team in one stop. Surrey plays West Kelowna at 7:30 p.m. Friday night followed by Vernon Saturday morning at 11:30 a.m. “It’s a little different,” said Eagles forward Brett Mulcahy, who captained Surrey to BCHL Western Canada Cup championships last spring. “It’s the first couple of games of the year and one of the games is officially a home game, but we’re playing on the road. It’s the first time we will play a game as a group and there are a lot of challenges in that. There’s also a lot of pressure on kids to play well because there are going to be a ton of scouts there from colleges and the pros. “There’s guys with clipboards standing all around the glass and it’s hard to ignore them and just focus on playing hockey. Everybody wants to show well but for younger guys, all the scouts there can make it really intimidating.” The scouts won’t be the only ones

lining up to have a look at the Eagles. With only six players returning from last season’s championship team, the Birds’ roster has undergone wholesale changes since the last time their rivals saw them. Schaefer did not tip his hand at all in the pre-season, opting mostly to dress a mix heavy on prospects and light on veterans for three exhibition games with the Chilliwack Chiefs. Surrey won the first game at South Surrey Arena 7-4 before tying the Chiefs 3-3 and losing 3-2 in Chilliwack. “We dressed kind of a stronger lineup for the first game because it was at home and the guys played well in that one,” Schaefer said. “The next two games were in Chilliwack and those were both tight, close games. We didn’t dress many veteran guys in those games and we still did all right. The first one was a tie and in the second one Chilliwack scored late in the game to win 3-2. A lot of credit has to go to our young guys they didn’t have much veteran help in those games and they played hard.” The Eagles will raise five championship banners to the rafters of South Surrey Arena when they play their home opener on Sept. 13 against the Langley Rivermen. Game time is 7 p.m.

The Vancouver Metro Soccer League will kick off the new season with a bang Saturday with a special showcase day at Newton Athletic Park. Hosted by Surrey’s CCB-TU United, all 12 VMSL clubs will be on hand to play their opening games of the season while taking a look at potential improvements or setbacks of rivals that took place over the summer months. The Delta United Hurricanes are no more, having moved their operation to Langley and leaving three clubs to battle for Surrey bragging rights. One of the teams under the spotlight will be two-time defending champion Surrey United Firefighters. Surrey will represent the province at the national championships next month but the club’s roster remains in a state of flux on the eve of the new campaign. “We had kind of a crazy year last season but it ended in the best possible way for us,” said Surrey coach Rob Reid. “Everything came together at the right time for us and now we’re the two-time reigning B.C. champions. We’re certainly not going to sneak up on anybody this year and we’ve also got some issues with our roster. “Between college, injuries and guys who are trying to get on with the fire department, we’re going to be missing six players who started for us in the Provincial Cup final in May. ” Reid added United will be relying heavily on players from the club’s Under-18 ranks this season with a trio of youngsters expected to join the big club for the national championships in Halifax on the Thanksgiving weekend. Saturday’s host club is looking for more stability after a roller-coaster 2012-13 season. CCB-TU United started last year on a tear and topped the league standing at the end of November only to take a precipitous plunge down the table in the final three months of the season. “It’s very important to have a good start in this league,” said CCB-RT United manager Garry Sangha. “We know the points you get in September can be very important so we have to make the most of our opportunities now. Inter (United’s opponent Saturday) just got brought up from first division, but they’ve been in premier before so we have to be ready for them.” ICST Pegasus has a new coach and will look to rebound from an up and down season in 2012-13. “It’s the start of the season so everybody wants to get off on the right foot,” said new Horseman bench boss Sipho Sibiya. “The games are important because you want the three points for the win, but at the same time, you want to check out the other teams and do some scouting. This is a tight league and everybody knows each other so there aren’t many secrets. There are some players who have moved around to other teams so it’s a good chance to see who is where and how they are fitting in with their new teams.” Surrey United Firefighters open play Saturday when they take on Estrella de Chile at noon. Host CCB-RT United hit the field at 2 p.m. against Inter while ICST Pegasus kick off their season at 4 p.m. against Columbus.

Leopards pounce on Raiders

New route changes take you further

A Great New Service: The King George 96 B-Line! 96 Guildford/Newton Exchange B-Line:

The Cloverdale Leopards opened the new bantam football season in fine style with a 20-8 home field win over the Richmond Raiders. Quarterback Victor Belanger scored a pair of touchdowns to spark the Leopards while Bennie Clark added another. â?&#x161; In atom action, Jace Atkinson and Fuchs each scored TDs in a losing cause as the Cloverdale Tigers were dumped 52-18 by the North Delta Longhorns. â?&#x161; Terrel Jones scored three majors and Walker Erickson added a pair as the Cloverdale Bobcats mauled the New West Hyacks 40-0 in peewee action. â?&#x161; In junior bantam play, Raphael Alcoreza returned the opening kick 50 yards for a TD and the Cloverdale Cougars were off to the races en route to a 38-8 win over the host North Surrey Falcons. Jesse Goedman scored the Falcons TD. â?&#x161; North Surreyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s atom Lions blitzed the Coquitlam Lions by a score of 50-0.

Keyshawn Beswick did most of the damage with three touchdowns while other majors came from Myles McPherson, Kieran Pama, Sabastian Blunt and Aidan Reithaug. McPherson also helped out on defence with a long interception return. â?&#x161; The North Surrey T-Birds also posted a win to open the new atom campaign, beating the host Langley Broncos 22-8. Tunga Mukiza, Parkor Sarai and Treyvaughn Levac each scored TDs to power the T-Birds to victory. On defence, Nnamdi Okuma made several big tackles and came up with a fumble recovery to help the North Surrey efforts. â?&#x161; The White Rock-South Surrey Titans came up empty in their midget home opener, falling 12-0 to Maple Ridge. â?&#x161; Holden Allen scored two touchdowns in a losing cause as the White Rock-South Surrey atom Titans were tripped up 24-16 by the Westside Warriors in Vancouver.

AUTOMOTIVE Fine Lines

Lotus Europa beat odds to become fan favourite

cars, The Europa broke new engineering ground and its low price (around $4,600) kept it within range of a wider group of buyers. The Lotus models that

followed, even after Colin Chapman’s death in 1982, were, and continue to be, geared to more upscale enthusiasts. Malcolm Gunn is a feature

WOLFE MITSUBISHI’S

Malcolm Gunn Wheelbase Media

sufficiently entertained. The fact that the driver’s backside practically scraped the ground helped create the illusion of speed. In any event, the Europa’s precise suspension and direct steering were really the Europa’s strong points. In designing the car, Chapman stuck to his tried and true one-piece backbone chassis used in previous Lotus models that helped keep the Europa’s centre of gravity attached to Mother Earth. However, the size and shape of the chassis also severely restricted cabin space. Tall and/or wide passengers had practically no hope of ever entering the car’s claustrophobic confines. The Europa’s plastic shell was glued to the chassis to further keep the weight down. Unfortunately, this approach made repairing damaged body panels a chore, so bolts were eventually substituted. Initially, the arrangement with Renault gave the French automaker exclusive rights to sell the original Series I Europa in Europe. However, by 1969, Chapman was able to market his mid-engine marvel, by then upgraded to Series II status with a larger version of the Renault 16 engine, to the rest of the world, specifically the sports-car-hungry North American market. The Europa S2 was available in Great Britain as an unassembled kit car (similar to the bare-bones-basic Lotus Super 7 roadster) to avoid the country’s onerous purchase taxes. As a bow to convention and to satisfy the export market, the car featured power windows and other minor comfort improvements. As for power, or rather, the lack of it, a fix came in 1971 in the form of a Ford-Cortina-based 1.6-litre twincam engine that originally produced 105 horsepower but was quickly updated to 126 ponies. Zero-to-100km/h times dropped by more than two seconds, weekend club racers rejoiced and the marque’s purists were relieved that finally a “proper” Lotus engine and five-speed manual gearbox had found their way into the Europa’s engine bay. By the time the Europa was retired in 1974, more than 9,200 had been produced. That wasn’t enough to worry mainstream manufacturers, but it was certainly a success story by Lotus standards. As one of the first mass-produced mid-engine sports

To look at the Europa, it seems amazing that this awkwardly styled, junior-sized sports car wearing a Lotus badge and powered by a tepid Renault engine could have been so popular. But its mid-engine design (between the passenger compartment and the rear wheels), spectacular driving characteristics and reasonable price made it a vital revenue producer that kept Lotus afloat and helped fuel the company’s professional racing efforts. Colin Chapman, visionary founder and chief engineer for Lotus Cars of England, was never one to follow convention and the wide range of sports cars he produced over the years reflected this fact. Although most of his creations were technically superior to anything else being built, they tended to be poorly assembled and usually required frequent and expensive maintenance to keep them roadworthy. Still, Chapman enjoyed near cult status among longsuffering, but fiercely loyal Lotus owners who put up with just about any inconvenience for the driving thrills that their none-too-trusty steeds delivered. The Lotus boss had primarily focused on open-top roadsters in the 1950s and ’60s, but undertook a completely different direction with the Europa, which was launched in 1966. Physically, it defied description and baffled fans and critics alike. Between the front bumper and the doors, it was pure sports car, but behind the seats, the design went off track, prompting some to refer to the Europa’s slab sides and flat rear deck that extended out behind a narrow ribbon of rear window as possessing the appearance of a flattened bread van. The lack of decent luggage space or even roll-down windows also created consternation. The gossip never bothered Chapman. The car looked the way it did for a reason, and that was to conceal the French-built 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine and fourspeed manual transaxle originally developed for the front-wheeldrive Renault 16. For the Europa’s application, the entire powertrain was positioned lengthwise directly behind the seats and ahead of the rear axle. It developed a modest 78 horsepower and even though it had just 620 kilograms to propel, the Europa lumbered to 100 km/h at about the same pace as today’s economy cars. However, it was enough to keep most buyers

Nissan 300ZX, 1990-’96

ALL INVENTORY PRICED TO SELL!

Wheelbase Media

Some would consider the 1980s the “lost years” of performance. If that’s the case, then the 1990s ushered in a rebirth. The decade proved many things, first and foremost that bread-andbutter manufacturers had what it took to build world-class sports cars. Dodge would build its first Viper after not producing any real performance hardware since the early 1970s. Acura would carve its NSX from a block of titanium and aluminum alloy, a tribute to its Formula One racing success. Mazda would bring light weight and turbocharged rotary power to its pinnacle with the RX-7. Chevrolet was just putting the finishing touches on its 375-horsepower ZR-1 Corvette. And Nissan? Nissan started the whole ball rolling with its 300ZX. In fact, the current 370Z is a direct descendent of the 300ZX, which was phased out in the mid-1990s. Big boots to fill, indeed, for the 350Z and 370Z, since the 300ZX was the last in a quarter-century-long line of “Z-cars.” When it rolled into dealer showrooms in 1989, it changed perceptions about the capabilities of Japanese automakers: that they were for real and completely capable of building whatever they wanted, from economy runabouts to exotic performance icons. The 300ZX was living, breathing and optionallytwin-turbocharged proof. And it was a serious threat. It looked every bit as exotic as a big-buck German or Italian sporting machine, but at a more down-toearth price. And it could easily keep up with, and frequently outrun, many of them. The introduction of the 300ZX didn’t just take the automotive world by storm, it signaled that the company had finally abandoned the aging 240Z-based shape that had been around since the early 1970s. The original Datsun (a Nissan brand name) Z-car had been a styling and sales triumph when first introduced, proving that a great-looking, greatperforming GT-class car didn’t have to have a sky-high sticker price. The 240Z was replaced by the 260Z in 1974 and the 280Z the following year. Although both appeared similar to the original 240, they were no faster due to the extra weight of their reinforced bumpers and detuned six-cylinder engines, both a result of government safety and air-pollution laws. Both the 260Z and 280Z offered an extended-wheelbase 2+2 version, which carried over to the 280ZX 1983. It might have looked similar

to the previous cars, but it was larger and considerably heavier. It had also lost some of the crisp handling and spunky behaviour of the original. The mid-1980s marked the beginning of the first-generation Nissan 300ZX, a restyled and more powerful successor to the 280ZX. The new model abandoned the previous straight-six engine in favour of a 3.0litre V6 that brought back the power and the passion of the original Z. The only problem was the body design, which continued to emulate previous Z-cars, looked dated. To Nissan’s credit, though, the inaugural version of the 300ZX enjoyed brisk sales in its five years on the market. The dawn of the 1990s heralded the arrival of a second-generation 300ZX, a thoroughly modern styling masterpiece and a radical departure from previous Z/ZX designs. As with the first ZX, the new 300 offered both two-seat and 2+2 stretched body styles. In base form, the V6, equipped with double overhead cams, delivered a respectable 222 horsepower. The twin-turbocharged variant of the 3.0 packed 300 horsepower, which was enough to push the 1,580-kilgram car to 60 mph in a quick-ish 5.5 seconds, 1.3 seconds faster than the non-turbo car, according to Nissan. Either engine could be coupled to a five-speed manual transmission, or optional four-speed automatic. Serious performance fans opted for the manual gearbox since the automatic used smaller turbochargers, which reduced horsepower to 280. Ordering the twin-turbo option also included Super HICAS, Nissan’s four-wheel-steering system. Designed to improve high-speed cornering, this computer-controlled feature turned the rear wheels to a maximum of one degree while the car moved through a turn, gradually straightening out once the maneuver was completed. As good as the 300ZX was, sales of Nissan’s super-fast near-exotic vehicle were simply not strong enough to justify maintaining production. Even the introduction of a convertible model in 1993 was not enough to nudge the 300ZX out of the doldrums and the car was cancelled at the end of the 1996 model year.

Surrey’s smallest school finally has crossing guard ‘They keep you feeling young,’ Patricia Rush says of her 42 students

Serious about school zone safety Being careless can cost you more than just a fine Tom Zytaruk Now staff Twitter @tomzytaruk

Driving like a jerk in a school zone, and getting caught, can get very expensive. Fines range from $167 for failing to stop for a school bus, failing to yield to pedestrians or disobeying a school patrol guard, to $196 to $253 for speeding in school or playground zones. Car crashes are the number one preventable cause of death for B.C. residents ages five to 18. Cpl. Robert McDonald, of RCMP traffic services for the Lower Mainland, advises both drivers and pedestrians to make eye contact with one another, to make sure they’re seen. Pedestrians, he said, should also dress to be seen. “Wear bright or light coloured clothing. In dark or bad weather, wear reflective material on clothes or accessories. “Be aware of parked vehicles in a parking lot or on the road,” McDonald added. “A driver may not see you between parked vehicles and you may not see them moving. Before crossing or walking through a parking lot, stop and look left, right, left, around parked vehicles. Children should avoid taking shortcuts through parking lots.” An 82-year-old Surrey man died in Royal Columbian Hospital this week after being hit by a motorist who wasn’t able to see him because another car blocked his view.

After countless near-misses and drivers failing to heed crosswalk signage for years, Surrey’s smallest school finally has its own crossing guard in Patricia Rush. Beginning her duties Tuesday at South Surrey’s East Kensington Elementary, Rush said she’s looking forward to ensuring the safety of the school’s 42 students each and every morning as they cross the increasingly busy 184th Street. For East Kensington principal Beverley Siggs, having Rush on duty is a welcome relief for teachers and parents alike. “As the traffic patterns are changing in Surrey, the traffic has increased along 184th (Street) so it’s very hard for people to actually notice that there’s a school here,” said Siggs. see BIG NEWS › page 4

Bob Bose at Semiahmoo Park, where Surrey hosted a party for its first anniversary as a city in 1994. Bose was mayor at the time. (Photo: AMY REID) was alive and well, despite of all the controversy,” Bose said. “We did an awful lot of good things.” After his mayoralty, Bose returned to Surrey civic politics as a councillor, from 2000 to the 2011. He was the last Surrey Civic Coalition politician with a seat on council until he was ousted in 2011, when Surrey First swept all the seats. Bose said his proudest accomplishments include acquiring a lot of open space for the city. “They were everything from big projects to little ones,” Bose said. Acquisitions under his watch included properties that now make up the Stewart Farm and the Surrey Bend Regional Park, which is nearly as large as Stanley Park. “The most important thing to me is that we laid the groundwork for

what I think is quite unique anywhere in the region in terms of laying out (ecologically) sensitive areas and ecological management systems, which will hopefully serve the city into the future.” And Bose thinks the city should acquire 600 more acres of land. Leading up to the 2011 election, he put a motion to council to do just that, and suggested it go to referendum. The idea never saw the light of day. Earlier in his career, the question of preserving Green Timbers and Sunnyside Acres went to referendum. As a result, the city still has those parks today. “I think that really characterizes that 20 years from becoming a city to today. If I have a regret, it’s that the momentum has largely been lost

because there’s not a political will to carry it on,” Bose said. Bose said Surrey has really grown up. The city now attracts highcalibre architects, he said, of which he is particularly proud. Bose pointed to Bing Thom, who designed the new City Centre Library, which he described as “extraordinary.” He said transit has grown tremendously over the past two decades, pointing to the city’s three SkyTrain stops. Looking into the future, Bose said transportation will continue to help Surrey grow even more. Rapid transit connecting City Centre to the Guildford and Newton communities will be key, he said, adding that he supports light rail. “That will lead to further densification and create more of an urban context in those centres,” he said. Another component that is key to Surrey’s success, Bose said, is switching to a different political system. “While we talk a lot

about neighbourhoods and strengthening neighbourhoods, there’s no spokesperson for those neighbourhoods.” Bose said some councillors should be elected at large, some at the local level, and the mayor elected at large. “After all, you have an MLA representing an area. Why is there not a council member who works closely with that MLA and can speak for its neighbourhood?” Bose said right now, the business of Surrey is development. “I think at some point in the future, the business of Surrey council will be community and that requires a more robust political structure. And I can’t imagine how that could happen without neighbourhood representation.” areid@thenownewspaper.com With files from Tom Zytaruk

TUESDAY: Dianne Watts shares her ambitious vision for Surrey’s future.

From Surrey having one big, blue central computer at city hall to iPads in council meetings, much has changed in the city over the last 20 years. In the same time, the city has seen massive expansion of Surrey Memorial Hospital, major growth in the public school system and SkyTrain has come to the region. Surrey celebrates its 20th anniversary as a city on Sept. 11, and Bob Bose was there for it all. Bose, former mayor and councillor in Surrey, is the son of a pioneering farming family that came to Surrey in the 1890s. He served as a Surrey alderman from 1978 to 1985 and then served as Surrey’s mayor for nine years, from 1988 to 1996. Those were rock’em-sock’em times on council, with Bose leading a slate of four left-wing Surrey Civic Electors council members against five right-wing Surrey Electors Team councillors. Bose said it was tough working as mayor in a minority government. “The council of the day was referred to as being dysfunctional, which I dispute because it was anything but dysfunctional. It was, in fact, I think alive and democracy

FOCUS ON SENIORS FORUM

“There’s a lot of signage but people don’t tend to pay attention to it so they’re often right on top of the crosswalk when they see the light is flashing and students are crossing, so we’ve had a few near misses and were very concerned.” According to school board trustee Laurae McNally, every school, no matter how small, deserves the same level of safety for its students and while parents have tried to act as crossing guards in the past, their efforts often went unheeded. “Parents have for years tried to be crossing guards on their own and everyone just thumbs their nose at them. I’ve been here many times with the police when people are going 90 clicks through here, it’s like a raceway,” said McNally. “So I took a motion to the board last spring to request having a crossing guard here and the board unanimously supported it.” Janine Humphrey is especially relieved, as her son has been nearly hit three times in the last year alone while trying to cross.

“I’ve caught him by the hood and had to rip him back from running into the street,” she said. “If I didn’t pull him back, he would’ve been gone. Nobody slows down here so it’s been a scary thing to worry about.” For Rush, standing as East Kensington’s new guard is an opportunity to do some good in the community and give back to the city’s youth. “My husband and I ran a daycare before and we weren’t becoming frail exactly but maybe a little threadworn, so we stopped,” said Rush. “We really missed being around children and then my husband hit upon the idea of becoming a crossing guard. He’s now a crossing guard at Latimer (Road Elementary) and is enjoying it so much.” That same level of enjoyment is what prompted Rush to follow suit, and after her first day of duty at East Kensington, she’s looking forward to the rest of the school year. “They keep you feeling young, they’re like new spring buds coming in each season.” cpoon@thenownewspaper.com

So far this year, the Surrey RCMP criminal collision investigative team has investigated 20 serious traffic crashes involving eight deaths and 12 people suffering life-threatening or serious injuries. Two of those killed were pedestrians. In White Rock, RCMP volunteers have been tying yellow ribbons of police tape around signposts in an effort to remind drivers to slow down. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Many more children are on the road each morning and afternoon and it demands that all drivers change their driving patterns and be vigilant,â&#x20AC;? said Const.

The victim was crossing in the 7300block of King George Boulevard on Sunday evening, not in a crosswalk, when the Chevrolet Venture hit him. Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said the manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death underlines the importance of using crosswalks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This victim would still be alive today,â&#x20AC;? Paquet said. The motorist, a 62-year-old Surrey man, was not injured. He hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been speeding, and the weather was fine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The victim pretty much stepped in front of him,â&#x20AC;? Paquet said. As for children heading back to school, and with many people now heading back to work, the Surrey RCMP will be out in â&#x20AC;&#x153;full forceâ&#x20AC;? patrolling school zones to ensure compliance with the Motor Vehicle Act. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Students are also reminded to cross the road defensively and assume that they are not always seen,â&#x20AC;?

Surrey Mounties are trying to sort out what started a brawl in a yard in South Surrey on Sunday night. Several people were arrested following the fracas, which happened shortly before 7 p.m. in the 2600-block of King George Boulevard. Surrey RCMP Cpl. Bert Paquet said police are hearing all kinds of different

versions from people at the scene that are â&#x20AC;&#x153;conflicting with one another.â&#x20AC;? He said he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t able to confirm if machetes were used in the fight. No one was seriously injured, he said. Two people were taken to hospital. Staff Sgt. Murray Hedderson said a man involved in the fight ran back into the house and refused to come out. An

emergency response team was called in and surrounded the place while police tried to talk him out. He eventually surrendered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The residence was held overnight,â&#x20AC;? Hedderson said, while police obtained a search warrant. No charges had been laid by press time. Tom Zytaruk

We must keep wits about water ViewFrom TheCheap Seats Michael Booth

FOLLOW WITH

B

read may be the staff of life, but it’s a claim that conveniently overlooks the value of water to almost every life form on our increasingly overstressed planet. Animals, plants, fish and insects all need some kind of access to water just to survive another day, and an absence or surplus of the precious liquid affects ecosystems in dramatic ways. Floods, tsunamis and hurricanes bring devastation while the absence of the stuff is equally traumatic as it leads to droughts, wild fires, famines and disease. Not only does it sustain life, humans have harnessed the power of water to create hydroelectric dams, solved transportation issues with canals, made a desert bloom in Israel, irrigated mountains in Peru, and wowed tourists in

Versailles and Las Vegas with spectacular fountains. All over the world, people’s lives are dependant on their access to water. In Africa, tribes trek miles every day to collect water and bring it back to their villages, just as great herds of animals migrate hundreds of miles in an effort to follow the seasonal fluctuations in the water supply. Here in Canada we are blessed with one of the greatest concentrations of fresh water on the planet – so much so that we take it for granted. Nomadic tribes around the world cherish every drop of water but here in North America, we poop in it and spray it on our lawns in an effort to make our homes look pretty. Fresh water is so plentiful here that we don’t even give it a second thought. This point was driven home last month when it was revealed the province of British Columbia doesn’t have a workable groundwater management plan. The province’s negligence on the topic came to light when it was reported in the Province that Swiss corporate giant Nestlé was sucking more than 260

million litres of water out of the ground near Hope every year to supply its burgeoning bottled water business. And the price this multibillion dollar corporate giant paid for that water? Nothing. Nada, zero, zip, sweet tweet, nothing. That’s not Nestlé’s fault, it’s ours. It’s our own egregious lack of foresight in managing what may turn out to be the most precious resource in a nation rife with natural abundances that allows such exploitation to occur. Never mind the dollars in tax revenue that our cash-strapped provincial coffers are missing out on, the impact of our water mismanagement could be felt for years. For starters, 260 million litres is a heck of a lot of water. An Olympic-sized swimming pool holds 2.5 million litres of water so that translates into 104 Olympic swimming pools being siphoned out of the

local water supply in Hope. It’s not an ocean mind you, but it’s still significant and that amount is being pulled out of the ground every year. Because this water comes from the ground, the cumulative effects of the missing fluid are hard to measure. What we do know is that humans are remarkably dense when it comes to interactions with Mother Nature. We profess amazement when, after years of using the seas as a garbage dump, scientists find massive islands of plastic junk in the middle of the oceans. We are shocked when an oil tanker slaloming through ice-riddled inlets in Alaska finally slams into a rock and dumps crude oil into the environment. We welcome the thought of warmer weather in the northern reaches of the continent because of climate change, conveniently ignoring the starving polar bears that

no longer have ice floes to traverse out to their traditional hunting ranges. And we declare the air pollution problem in Beijing solved when the government there shuts down manufacturing for a couple of weeks in an effort to create picture perfect postcard images of the city during the Olympic Games. Ecosystems are a delicate balancing act and when any part of the structure changes, the effects can be far reaching. Pulling hundreds of millions of litres of water out of the ground does have an impact. The ground water tables are affected, which in turn alters the amount of water that ends up in rivers and wells. Less water in the rivers can lead to an increase in the temperature of the streams, which threatens fish stocks. Less water in the wells increased the concentration of chemicals and fertilizer run off, making the water undrinkable.

When rivers are lower and the volume of water they deliver to the deltas and oceans drops, the salinity levels of the large saltwater bodies rise, making them inhospitable to marine life – including valuable salmon stocks. And these are just the effects seen from removing significant amounts of water from one source. Imagine the impact of multiple operations of this kind in the province, coupled with the environmental costs that come with countless instances of mine tailings, oil and gas exploration, fracking, deforestation, pipeline spills and hydroelectric dam construction. But hey, it’s a small price to pay for the convenience of sipping from a plastic bottle filled with the same water you can get for free from your kitchen tap.

South Surrey high schools: clean up your mess The Editor, In watching the news, I saw items about back to school parties and the damage they have caused on the North Shore. The RCMP seemed determine to stop these destructive events. My feeling was, â&#x20AC;&#x153;not our kids.â&#x20AC;? I was so wrong! Check out the forested area behind Softball City off 148th Street in South Surrey. I quit counting the discarded beer cans at 200. The waste also included, fast food wrapping, Coke/water and juice bottles, clothing, plastic bags, condoms, many egg cartons along with smashed eggs. The sight in this beautiful forest was disgusting! It is my hope that the student councils from the four local high schools in South Surrey will put their differences aside, get together and clean up their mess.

Board of Trade stated its myopic view on legalizing marijuana in British Columbia and maintaining the status quo. Might there be a conflict of interest? I wonder this because the board hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been speaking out boldly about revoking the legalization of alcohol. Why isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it advocating for the closure of pubs and liquor outlets? Substance abuse is substance abuse â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and liquor affects workersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; productivity as much, or more â&#x20AC;&#x201C; than any other drug. One canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help to wonder if the Surrey Board of Trade is trying to appease some political pundit(s) with its posturing. John Mackintosh, Surrey

Pot statements absurd The Editor, Re: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Marijuana movement sparks up in Surrey,â&#x20AC;? the Now, Sept. 3. Just as logic and common sense is starting to prevail in the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eye when it comes to our antiquated drug laws, you get the conservative ideology that the Surrey Board of Trade spews forth.

Up to

Every single thing CEO Anita Huberman said could have been taken right out of the cult classic film Reefer Madness. Her absurd statements have no basis in reality. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fear mongering plain and simple and most people just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t buy that anymore.

Transit art has value

The Editor, Re: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Marijuana movement sparks up in Surrey,â&#x20AC;? the Now, Sept. 3. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll bet if you interview the members of the Surrey Board of Trade and they told the truth, they know of occasions where they or some of their peers went to work a bit wobbly after a party or a long weekend. Such hypocrisy! One would think that these high-powered individuals would be a little more circumspect. If you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to see cannabis controlled like alcohol then just say so. Alcohol has caused a lot more social damage than marijuana.

The Editor, Re: â&#x20AC;&#x153;TransLinkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s art budget is obscene,â&#x20AC;? the Now letters, Sept. 3. I usually object to a lot of anti-TransLink stuff for the sake of being pro-transit, but I am in objection to this particular letter, not because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s harsh on TransLink, but because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pushing a straw man argument. Public art is a part of what taxpayer money goes into because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of enriching peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s daily lives and more. Research has shown public art makes a contribution to the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s perception of the quality and value of places, which is an important factor for rates of vandalism. TransLink is not acting wildly outside its mandate by investing in public art, and it certainly isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only authority in Metro Vancouver that does so. The city you live in and pay your taxes to has invested a ton of money on public art this year, worth at least $800,000, which youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see in places like the new, upcoming city hall. I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ever seen any outrage over that.

NEWS North Delta

Contract negotiations

Slick thieves rip off ring from helpful lady South Surrey Delta Police are looking for a pair of thieves who swiped a 75-year-old woman’s precious ring from her finger in North Delta on Saturday afternoon. The culprits flagged her down, in the 7600-block of 117th Street, asking for directions. They were in a grey car.

This was about 1 p.m. Police said the female thief distracted the victim by placing jewelry in her hand. “The female suspect then grasped the victim’s left hand and in the process removed the ring from the victim’s finger and a watch from her

wrist without her knowledge,” said Acting Sgt. Sarah Swallow. The thief and the driver then took off. The stolen ring has seven 0.9-carat diamonds in a cluster, mounted on a wide gold band. Swallow said the ring is of sentimental value to the victim.

ith municipalities across the Lower Mainland – including Vancouver, North Vancouver, Coquitlam, Burnaby, Richmond, Surrey and New Westminster, among others – participating in city-run food waste programs, one Canadian company has come up with a way to ease the composting process for residents. “The issue that crops up time and time again when you ask people to compost their kitchen waste in order to keep [organic material] out of the landfill is that it can, quite frankly, be a bit of a messy endeavour,” says Carson O’Neill, CEO of Bag To Earth Inc. “But the fact remains that these municipal food waste programs are a good idea. They really do work from an environmental perspective, so our aim is to make it easy and convenient – as hassle-free a process as possible – in order to encourage more participation.” He points to his firm’s Food Waste Bags, made from all-natural materials designed to disappear fully into the earth along with any

approved food scraps you toss into them. The bags, which come in two sizes, are comprised of a paper exterior lined with a patented natural fibre made from cellulose – a kind of “clear paper” that’s been in use for at least a century. “We’ve actually had consumers contact us after looking inside our bags and mistaking the lining for plastic, which, of course, it isn’t,” O’Neill states. “Cellulose is a 100% compostable material that will fully disappear back into the earth, just like the coffee grounds, eggshells, spaghetti sauce and banana peels you put into our bags. In other words, it helps to complete the organic loop.” Plastic bags, even those labelled biodegradable or compostable, he continues, have no place in an organic food waste program, as they actually “back up” the process. “Say you line the green bin that’s in your kitchen or the larger one on your curb with plastic and then you put your organics directly into that plastic for pickup,” he says. “What you end up with is a plastic bag sitting in the city’s compost site and backing it up because it’s a non-compostable material. It totally negates the purpose.” By lining your kitchen and/or outdoor bin with a Bag To Earth Food Waste Bag, however, all of the material – food waste and bag – that’s taken from your home by your municipality will return to the earth in its entirety. The question remains: why would any well-meaning resident put plastic inside a bin, when the contents of that bin are meant for compost? O’Neill says it often comes down to cleanliness. “Leftover food scraps can be slimy and stinky, and even those of us with the best intentions when it comes to the environment may be deterred from participating in a composting program due to the mess,”

“Our aim is to make it easy and convenient – as hassle-free a process as possible – in order to encourage more participation in municipal food waste composting programs”

Bag To Earth Food Waste Bags are made from all-natural materials designed to disappear fully into the earth along with any approved food scraps you toss into them, thus helping to complete the organic loop. he says. “Our Food Waste Bags, however, solve this problem by keeping your bins clean and odour free.” Not only is the cellulose liner in every Bag To Earth Food Waste Bag totally leak-proof, keeping unpleasant smells from escaping is as simple as rolling down the top of the bag and sealing it with a clip or clothespin. Additionally, each Food Waste Bag’s flat bottom means it can either be placed in your green bin or set as a standalone right on your kitchen counter. “When the bag’s full, just run it out and put it in your curbside bin,” says O’Neill. “No need to dump it out; the bag goes right in and returns to the earth completely, from the lining to the tie … right down to the print on the exterior. And, if you wish, line your outdoor bin with one of our larger-sized bags. You won’t need to hose down the interior due to food scraps getting stuck on the sides and making a mess.” Each small Bag To Earth Food Waste Bag, one of which will last a family of four about a week (just enough time to fill and place curbside for pickup), costs approximately $0.50 – that’s just $26 a year. Again, O’Neill emphasizes the fact that “nothing about our Food Waste Bags compromises the composting aspect.” In fact, Bag To Earth relies on the success of municipally run food waste programs. “We follow these programs very closely and regularly update our website with the latest information from across the country,” he says. “Consumers are more than welcome to visit www.bagtoearth.com to find details about their local food waste program, as well as a list of retailers in their area that carry our products.”

Gary Xie may be 17, but he has an ambitious plan to reform British Columbia’s education system. In June, Xie read a news story about the provincial government’s proposed 10-year contract with the B.C. Teachers’ Federation. He and his Semiahmoo Secondary school classmate, Raaj Chatterjee, saw flaws in their own schooling and wanted the government to invest more in schools and educational resources. The two students who live in White Rock drafted a letter with 10 recommendations, including suggestions such as increased funding and allowing for student representatives during contract negotiations. Xie, who started Grade 12 on Tuesday, was one of seven students who took turns running and cycling from Ladner to Victoria in order to attract attention as they delivered a letter to the minister of education, Peter Fassbender, recommending education reforms. “We hope to give voice to these concerns,” Xie said at the legislature. Rob Fleming, the NDP education critic, greeted the group of students and said their effort demonstrates the concern students are placing in their education. “Students are at the centre of education and left out by the government when negotiations or education policies are being made,” Fleming said. “Students do need to stand up and have a voice in their future.”

Smith still gets recognized as Green while out in public. “Oh yeah, and it’s interesting to me because I stopped doing the (TV) show seven years ago – the brand awareness today is much higher than it was when I stopped doing it, it’s just ridiculous.

ife is good these days for Steve Smith, who spent the summer with his wife living on their house boat on Lake Ontario, not far from the couple’s home near Hamilton. “We still have the house about five minutes away, but it’s just neat being on the water,” said Smith, better known as Red Green. “The kids have left home so we’re doing this while we can. It’s a great community of a bunch of people who live on their boats in the summer, so there’s no shortage of people to talk to, that’s for sure.” Smith spent part of his summer finetuning the Red Green show he’ll be touring Canada this fall, starting Thursday, Sept. 19 at Surrey’s Bell Performing Arts Centre and heading east. For tickets, call 1-866-6173257 or visit www.redgreen.com. The solo tour, dubbed “How to Do Everything (From the Man Who Should Know),” is the second one for Smith as Green, following an inaugural theatrical adventure for him in 2011. “This time around, like last time, I’ll be doing Canada in the fall and the U.S. in the spring,” Smith told the Now in a telephone interview. “The title of the tour is the same as the book I wrote, and I’m doing some things that are included in the book, but the lion’s share of what I’m presenting has never been written or spoken before.” Two years ago, Smith played some

upcoming tour. “A series isn’t happening, no,” Smith said. “The thing I like about touring is, I never did it before so it feels like a new career for me, because it’s only been a couple years of this, not 30 or 40. But with television, you know, trying to go back to recapture something that I maybe did better 20 years ago? C’mon. “I don’t have a drive to entertain mass audiences without seeing them,” he continued. “I’d rather entertain small audiences that are in the same room as me. And also, now that we have the internet and unlimited access to anything in the world at any time, live performance becomes the big divide – you were either there or you weren’t there, and the live show becomes more special because of that.” Before The New Red Green Show TV series ended, Smith gave cast and crew two years notice that he was done with it, after nearly 300 episodes were produced. A few years back, he came out of “retirement” with a book called Red Green’s How to Do Everything, leading to the “Wit and Wisdom” tour of 2011/12. “I’m doing this now on the basis of really enjoying what I’m doing,” Smith said. “And people who come to the show can tell. I mean, it’s not a hardship for me to be up there on stage, and I hope people recognize that. As long as I feel that way, I want to be able to do it, but the moment I don’t feel that way, I want to be able to stop. So there’s no commitment to do another tour after this, it’s all about this (tour) right now, and after it’s done, we’ll see how I feel. Same thing goes with the books and whatever else I’m doing. I feel like the best thing I can do for the audience now is to be doing something that I want to do and then let it go from there, let it decide when it’s over.”

and they know dishonest attempts to skew debates via misleading campaigns when they see them,” he wrote on his website. “Equally, Canadian consumers know instinctively that more competition will serve their families well through better service and lower prices.” Moore has said that he remains committed to increasing competition for Canada’s wireless scene. Currently, the Big Three control about 93 per cent of the Canadian wireless market, leaving only six of the country’s 17 providers as actual independent entities. With Verizon’s departure from the debate, Canadians are once again stuck with the status quo. For the unfamiliar, the status quo means Canadians are looking at remaining in the top 10 most expensive countries in the world for the majority of wireless services with some of the highest roaming fees on the planet. And while it may have been premature for so many to be championing Verizon as the saviour of competition for Canada’s wireless scene, the amount of support and interest shown for very notion of another competitor in Canada just shows how desperate we are for any sort of change on the wireless front. Hopefully the Big Three will take that to heart, and come down from their towers to introduce the change that consumers might actually welcome rather than the nickel and diming they’re so used to.

ell, it looks like Canada’s big three telecom s are going to be sleeping easier following the news that Verizon has declared it is not interested in entering the Canadian wireless market after all. The news follows months of an unsympathetic campaign by Canada’s three largest providers – Bell, Rogers and Telus – against Verizon’s possible move into the Canadian market, all of which cited “unfair” competition. However, while the “Big Three” were against the potential competitor arriving north of the border, the general public and politicians were excited about what it could have meant for Canadians. “We’ve heard from Canadians that they are sick of having money pricegouged out of their pockets then spent on a misleading PR campaign,” said OpenMedia.ca executive director Steve Anderson in a release. “We cannot allow the Big Three to continue to block innovative Canadian providers from offering affordable mobile service to Canadians. It is ridiculous that affordable, Canadian providers like Toronto-based Ting are only able to offer their services in the U.S. because they are blocked by the Big Three. The best way to lower cellphone prices and support job creation is to enable innovative Canadian providers like Ting equal access to Canadian infrastructure.” Industry Minister James Moore also had many choice words for the Big Three during their “misleading” campaign. “I think Canadians know very well what is at stake

Sing away the September stress ArtsScene Melanie Minty Columnist

T

his first week in September is one of the most stressful of the year. Back to school means new schedules, more traffic and an end of laidback summer days. It’s stress city, and this annual return to school does affect almost everyone, whether you have kids in school or not. Watch your speed in school zones, be careful of pedestrians – these pedestrians, after all, are still allowed to operate their feet while texting or talking. So they aren’t likely to be paying attention to the big, mean cars. More stress. So let’s take up a new hobby that relieves stress. Sing! Rhayne (sounds sort of like “rain” when she says it) has been singing her whole life, and she believes singing is a very healthy outlet – “very good for the soul.” Rhayne is a professional recording artist and singer-songwriter who is passionate about teaching. She has performed professionally in musical theatre, studied voice under the late great Ralph Cole of The Nylons, and trained in several styles, including opera, adult contemporary, pop, R&B and improvisation. Rhayne has been teaching her popular “Love to Sing” class for many years throughout the Lower Mainland. Her songs have had radio airplay in Canada, the U.S., and Australia, and club play throughout many countries, as well on internet radio. Check out Rhayne’s website at www.rhayne.com. Rhayne is bringing her “Love to Sing” program to Surrey for the first time. Offered at Surrey Arts Centre, the program will run for five weeks beginning Sept. 25 at a cost of $50. A free, introductory session is being offered on Wednesday, Sept. 18 from 2 to 4 p.m. Although the introductory

session is free, participants are asked to register to reserve their spot. Register online at www.surrey. ca/register or by phone at 604-501-5100. This new daytime singing class for adults is certainly affordable. Even better, you don’t need any previous experience to participate. Learn to be a confident singer whether your goal is to sing in the shower, karaoke, with a choir or hope to be a recording artist. Why not? When you learn vocal techniques and secrets used by the professionals, you’ll be amazed at what you can do. Singing with Rhayne, you’ll explore many music genres, including pop, musical theatre, blues, ballads, and rhythm and blues. All you need is an interest in Rhayne’s friendly teaching style, which creates an encouraging atmosphere where everyone, regardless of singing ability, feels at ease. Bye bye, stress. Learning to sing properly, with correct breathing skills, will help you avoid injury, sustain notes and project clearly. “It’s empowering,” says Rhayne, “and it is a lot of fun and a great way to meet people.” Rhayne is also teaching her “Love to Sing” program at Guildford Recreation Centre (604-502-6360), with an introductory free class on Oct. 1, for seniors at Kennedy Seniors’ Centre in North Delta, and for all ages at Fleetwood Recreation Centre (starts Sept. 9, call 604-501-5030 to register). Take advantage of the free class, but you must register first, so do it now. Call for more information and registration for any of the “Love to Sing” times and venues at 604-501-5100. Singing is “easy when you know how” is the last bit of encouragement from Rhayne. I’m taking the class. I’ll be singing with Rhayne so I can be singing in the rain. Check the forecast. There’s lots of singin’ and rainin’ in September. melminty@telus.net

The Mirage is usually filled with young socialites and popped-collared 20somethings, but the nightclub may soon bring in a different crowd one night a week. Starting Sept. 27, the Guildford-area club will host live rock and pop music every Friday instead of its typical dance and electronic tunes. The shift aims to bring talented rock ‘n’ roll musicians to Surrey, while also drawing both locals and out-oftowners to the club for a top-notch concert experience. “We’ve got a really cool scene in Surrey – it’s about time that there’s a live venue that supports up-and-coming talent and some really cool national and international

With new gear and a variety of acts to choose from, the guys are excited to bring some high-calibre artists to the Mirage – not like it hasn’t had a few in the past. “I remember someone phoned us up and said, ‘Hey, do you want to have Lady Gaga?’” said Fergson. “I went to our DJ and said, ‘Who’s Lady Gaga?’ Now she’s huge.” The guys already have a few shows lined up for the club: The Special Tease performs on Sept. 27 with guests, and country star Karen-Lee Batten performs Oct. 4. Hill has been promoting shows recently at the Exotica lounge at the Turf Hotel in Surrey, but he said his focus now is working with Warwick on the Mirage shows.

Family-friendly Zombie Walk in White Rock Saturday

If you happen to see the dead walking along Marine Drive this Saturday, Sept. 7, don’t worry, it isn’t the start of the zombie apocalypse. No, it’s just White Rock’s third annual Zombie Walk, a yearly gathering for people to dress up as the undead and roam the streets of White Rock purely for the sake of good times. The event was founded and organized by White Rock resident Teresa Brauer, who started the walk shortly after moving to the seaside community four years ago. “I was part of a group in Edmonton that did the Edmonton Zombie Walk and so we came here and found the closest zombie walk was downtown Vancouver,” she said. “Being in White Rock, we found that going downtown on a weekend with thousands expected to show up wasn’t very appealing, so we decided to start one up here.” In that inaugural year, Brauer said she and her husband were fully prepared to be the only two walking around White Rock kitted out as the undead, but to her surprise, around 40 people showed up to join in. “People showed up and they were of the like mind that going to downtown Vancouver was going to be a little crazy,” she said. “A lot of it was also the timing. For Vancouver, it was the third weekend in August, but a lot of people are still on vacation, finishing up holidays with the children before school starts, so we wanted something in the first week or two of school – everybody is back home settled into the routine and ready to have some fun.” As far as she knows, Brauer said this was the

having fun, people ask for spare blood and join up and others look at you wondering what’s going on.” Adding to the event’s feelgood vibe is the fact that organizers will be collecting donations for the food bank,

and all participants are asked to bring one canned food item. “The food banks are low at this time of year and there are a lot of families that need assistance,” said Brauer. “People donate a

lot at Christmas time but back-to-school is also a very important time to raise awareness for the food bank.” The third annual White Rock Zombie Walk takes place on Saturday, Sept. 7 beginning in the parking

lot of Washington Avenue Grill, 15782 Marine Dr. Participants are asked to meet at around 1:30 p.m. and the walk will commence at 2 p.m. Zombies of all ages are welcome, as it is a family-friendly event and there will be prizes for the best costume. For more information, go to http:// tinyurl.com/k5p5njn. “You get to laugh at yourself, laugh at others and just have fun,” said Brauer. “Everybody loves Halloween, so why not have it more than once a year?” cpoon@ thenownewspaper.com

only zombie walk south of the Fraser River. For this year, the plan is to gather in the parking lot of Washington Avenue Grill and then shamble up Marine Drive and down the pier. “It’s about a 35-40 minute walk, so it’s great for the younger children,” said Brauer. “Vancouver is a very long walk, so this one is great for families if you have smaller children, and the families really get into it.” In terms of how the walk has been received in the past and the types of people it attracts, Brauer said it’s all about having a good time and that’s been reflected in past walks. “Everyone’s been very accepting, we haven’t had any negative response,” she said. “People are either honking their horns or waving, laughing and

ARTS & LIFE Annual event at senator’s ranch

West art show remembers Betty SEE PROMO VIDEO OF ART SHOW

Tom Zillich Now staff Twitter @tomzillich

The fourth annual West Fine Art Show has special meaning for Murray Phillips, who organizes the event with fellow artist Brian Croft. This year the show is dedicated to Phillips’ longtime wife, Betty, who died of cancer in June. During her final days, Langley Hospice became a second home for the couple, their family and friends. It was Betty’s wish to “live my dying well,” she told her husband of nearly 46 years, and she did.

Artists Brian Croft (left) and Murray Phillips stage their annual West Fine Art Show in Surrey from Sept. 6 to 8.

“Near the end, I told Betty I would like to do a fundraiser for hospice, (and) she wholeheartedly agreed,” said Murray, who lives in the Murrayville area of Langley. “They have been so kind and gracious to us, we need to help so others can experience this kind of care and support.”

Accordingly, part proceeds from art sales at this weekend’s event in Surrey will be given to Langley Hospice Society. The works of 16 artists will be featured at the show, held Friday to Sunday (Sept. 6 to 8) at Senator Gerry St. Germain’s Indian Springs Land and Cattle Ranch, 19339 8th Ave., Surrey. Admission is free; special guests will include Red Robinson and Shell Busey. In addition to Phillips and Croft, the show will feature works by artists Gaye Adams, Craig Benson, June Bloye, Carmel Clare, Brian Coombes, Lalita Hamill, Mark Hobson, Tammy Hunter, Doug Levitt, Esther Sample, Nathan Scott and Joe Smith. Music will be performed by guitarist John Gilliat and the trio Exit 58. The show runs Friday from 7 to 10 p.m., Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more details about West Fine Art Show, visit www.westart.ca. tzillich@thenownewspaper.com

Surrey Eagles

Ready or not, puck drops Friday Michael Booth Now staff Twitter @boothnow

The summer was far too short for the Surrey Eagles, but that’s the price you pay when you embark on a deep playoff run that takes you all the way to the semifinal round of the Royal Bank Cup national championship tournament. Eagles head coach Peter Schaefer had to rebuild on the fly this summer and the proof of his work will be on display this weekend in the B.C. Hockey League’s annual showcase event in Chilliwack. “We only have five or six guys returning but we are still a veteran team,” Schaefer said. “We have a lot of players who may be new to our team but they’ve played junior before on other teams and in other leagues. We also have some good young guys coming up so we’ll try and install some of the systems we used last year. “It’s a long season and there will be teams gunning for us because we are the defending champions, but we’ll be ready for that. Guys need to be ready to play every night because there won’t be any off nights for us.” The BCHL showcase event is now in its second year and has proven to be a big success with hockey scouts. The

format brings all 16 teams in the league to Chilliwack for the weekend. Each team plays two games with the points counting in the regular season standings. The aim of the event is to make the league and its players more accessible to college recruiters and pro scouts, who can view every team in one stop. Surrey plays West Kelowna at 7:30 p.m. Friday night followed by Vernon Saturday morning at 11:30 a.m. “It’s a little different,” said Eagles forward Brett Mulcahy, who captained Surrey to BCHL Western Canada Cup championships last spring. “It’s the first couple of games of the year and one of the games is officially a home game, but we’re playing on the road. It’s the first time we will play a game as a group and there are a lot of challenges in that. There’s also a lot of pressure on kids to play well because there are going to be a ton of scouts there from colleges and the pros. “There’s guys with clipboards standing all around the glass and it’s hard to ignore them and just focus on playing hockey. Everybody wants to show well but for younger guys, all the scouts there can make it really intimidating.” The scouts won’t be the only ones

lining up to have a look at the Eagles. With only six players returning from last season’s championship team, the Birds’ roster has undergone wholesale changes since the last time their rivals saw them. Schaefer did not tip his hand at all in the pre-season, opting mostly to dress a mix heavy on prospects and light on veterans for three exhibition games with the Chilliwack Chiefs. Surrey won the first game at South Surrey Arena 7-4 before tying the Chiefs 3-3 and losing 3-2 in Chilliwack. “We dressed kind of a stronger lineup for the first game because it was at home and the guys played well in that one,” Schaefer said. “The next two games were in Chilliwack and those were both tight, close games. We didn’t dress many veteran guys in those games and we still did all right. The first one was a tie and in the second one Chilliwack scored late in the game to win 3-2. A lot of credit has to go to our young guys they didn’t have much veteran help in those games and they played hard.” The Eagles will raise five championship banners to the rafters of South Surrey Arena when they play their home opener on Sept. 13 against the Langley Rivermen. Game time is 7 p.m.

The Vancouver Metro Soccer League will kick off the new season with a bang Saturday with a special showcase day at Newton Athletic Park. Hosted by Surrey’s CCB-TU United, all 12 VMSL clubs will be on hand to play their opening games of the season while taking a look at potential improvements or setbacks of rivals that took place over the summer months. The Delta United Hurricanes are no more, having moved their operation to Langley and leaving three clubs to battle for Surrey bragging rights. One of the teams under the spotlight will be two-time defending champion Surrey United Firefighters. Surrey will represent the province at the national championships next month but the club’s roster remains in a state of flux on the eve of the new campaign. “We had kind of a crazy year last season but it ended in the best possible way for us,” said Surrey coach Rob Reid. “Everything came together at the right time for us and now we’re the two-time reigning B.C. champions. We’re certainly not going to sneak up on anybody this year and we’ve also got some issues with our roster. “Between college, injuries and guys who are trying to get on with the fire department, we’re going to be missing six players who started for us in the Provincial Cup final in May. ” Reid added United will be relying heavily on players from the club’s Under-18 ranks this season with a trio of youngsters expected to join the big club for the national championships in Halifax on the Thanksgiving weekend. Saturday’s host club is looking for more stability after a roller-coaster 2012-13 season. CCB-TU United started last year on a tear and topped the league standing at the end of November only to take a precipitous plunge down the table in the final three months of the season. “It’s very important to have a good start in this league,” said CCB-RT United manager Garry Sangha. “We know the points you get in September can be very important so we have to make the most of our opportunities now. Inter (United’s opponent Saturday) just got brought up from first division, but they’ve been in premier before so we have to be ready for them.” ICST Pegasus has a new coach and will look to rebound from an up and down season in 2012-13. “It’s the start of the season so everybody wants to get off on the right foot,” said new Horseman bench boss Sipho Sibiya. “The games are important because you want the three points for the win, but at the same time, you want to check out the other teams and do some scouting. This is a tight league and everybody knows each other so there aren’t many secrets. There are some players who have moved around to other teams so it’s a good chance to see who is where and how they are fitting in with their new teams.” Surrey United Firefighters open play Saturday when they take on Estrella de Chile at noon. Host CCB-RT United hit the field at 2 p.m. against Inter while ICST Pegasus kick off their season at 4 p.m. against Columbus.

A Great New Service: The King George 96 B-Line! 96 Guildford/Newton Exchange B-Line:

The Cloverdale Leopards opened the new bantam football season in fine style with a 20-8 home field win over the Richmond Raiders. Quarterback Victor Belanger scored a pair of touchdowns to spark the Leopards while Bennie Clark added another. â?&#x161; In atom action, Jace Atkinson and Fuchs each scored TDs in a losing cause as the Cloverdale Tigers were dumped 52-18 by the North Delta Longhorns. â?&#x161; Terrel Jones scored three majors and Walker Erickson added a pair as the Cloverdale Bobcats mauled the New West Hyacks 40-0 in peewee action. â?&#x161; In junior bantam play, Raphael Alcoreza returned the opening kick 50 yards for a TD and the Cloverdale Cougars were off to the races en route to a 38-8 win over the host North Surrey Falcons. Jesse Goedman scored the Falcons TD. â?&#x161; North Surreyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s atom Lions blitzed the Coquitlam Lions by a score of 50-0.

Keyshawn Beswick did most of the damage with three touchdowns while other majors came from Myles McPherson, Kieran Pama, Sabastian Blunt and Aidan Reithaug. McPherson also helped out on defence with a long interception return. â?&#x161; The North Surrey T-Birds also posted a win to open the new atom campaign, beating the host Langley Broncos 22-8. Tunga Mukiza, Parkor Sarai and Treyvaughn Levac each scored TDs to power the T-Birds to victory. On defence, Nnamdi Okuma made several big tackles and came up with a fumble recovery to help the North Surrey efforts. â?&#x161; The White Rock-South Surrey Titans came up empty in their midget home opener, falling 12-0 to Maple Ridge. â?&#x161; Holden Allen scored two touchdowns in a losing cause as the White Rock-South Surrey atom Titans were tripped up 24-16 by the Westside Warriors in Vancouver.

Lotus Europa beat odds to become fan favourite

cars, The Europa broke new engineering ground and its low price (around $4,600) kept it within range of a wider group of buyers. The Lotus models that

followed, even after Colin Chapman’s death in 1982, were, and continue to be, geared to more upscale enthusiasts. Malcolm Gunn is a feature

sufficiently entertained. The fact that the driver’s backside practically scraped the ground helped create the illusion of speed. In any event, the Europa’s precise suspension and direct steering were really the Europa’s strong points. In designing the car, Chapman stuck to his tried and true one-piece backbone chassis used in previous Lotus models that helped keep the Europa’s centre of gravity attached to Mother Earth. However, the size and shape of the chassis also severely restricted cabin space. Tall and/or wide passengers had practically no hope of ever entering the car’s claustrophobic confines. The Europa’s plastic shell was glued to the chassis to further keep the weight down. Unfortunately, this approach made repairing damaged body panels a chore, so bolts were eventually substituted. Initially, the arrangement with Renault gave the French automaker exclusive rights to sell the original Series I Europa in Europe. However, by 1969, Chapman was able to market his mid-engine marvel, by then upgraded to Series II status with a larger version of the Renault 16 engine, to the rest of the world, specifically the sports-car-hungry North American market. The Europa S2 was available in Great Britain as an unassembled kit car (similar to the bare-bones-basic Lotus Super 7 roadster) to avoid the country’s onerous purchase taxes. As a bow to convention and to satisfy the export market, the car featured power windows and other minor comfort improvements. As for power, or rather, the lack of it, a fix came in 1971 in the form of a Ford-Cortina-based 1.6-litre twincam engine that originally produced 105 horsepower but was quickly updated to 126 ponies. Zero-to-100km/h times dropped by more than two seconds, weekend club racers rejoiced and the marque’s purists were relieved that finally a “proper” Lotus engine and five-speed manual gearbox had found their way into the Europa’s engine bay. By the time the Europa was retired in 1974, more than 9,200 had been produced. That wasn’t enough to worry mainstream manufacturers, but it was certainly a success story by Lotus standards.

To look at the Europa, it seems amazing that this awkwardly styled, junior-sized sports car wearing a Lotus badge and powered by a tepid Renault engine could have been so popular. But its mid-engine design (between the passenger compartment and the rear wheels), spectacular driving characteristics and reasonable price made it a vital revenue producer that kept Lotus afloat and helped fuel the company’s professional racing efforts. Colin Chapman, visionary founder and chief engineer for Lotus Cars of England, was never one to follow convention and the wide range of sports cars he produced over the years reflected this fact. Although most of his creations were technically superior to anything else being built, they tended to be poorly assembled and usually required frequent and expensive maintenance to keep them roadworthy. Still, Chapman enjoyed near cult status among longsuffering, but fiercely loyal Lotus owners who put up with just about any inconvenience for the driving thrills that their none-too-trusty steeds delivered. The Lotus boss had primarily focused on open-top roadsters in the 1950s and ’60s, but undertook a completely different direction with the Europa, which was launched in 1966. Physically, it defied description and baffled fans and critics alike. Between the front bumper and the doors, it was pure sports car, but behind the seats, the design went off track, prompting some to refer to the Europa’s slab sides and flat rear deck that extended out behind a narrow ribbon of rear window as possessing the appearance of a flattened bread van. The lack of decent luggage space or even roll-down windows also created consternation. The gossip never bothered Chapman. The car looked the way it did for a reason, and that was to conceal the French-built 1.5-litre four-cylinder engine and fourspeed manual transaxle originally developed for the front-wheeldrive Renault 16. For the Europa’s application, the entire powertrain was positioned lengthwise directly behind the seats and ahead of the rear axle. It developed a modest 78 horsepower and even though it had just 620 kilograms to propel, the Europa lumbered to 100 km/h at about the same pace as today’s economy cars. However, it was enough to keep most buyers

Nissan 300ZX, 1990-’96

ALL INVENTORY PRICED TO SELL!

Wheelbase Media

Some would consider the 1980s the “lost years” of performance. If that’s the case, then the 1990s ushered in a rebirth. The decade proved many things, first and foremost that bread-andbutter manufacturers had what it took to build world-class sports cars. Dodge would build its first Viper after not producing any real performance hardware since the early 1970s. Acura would carve its NSX from a block of titanium and aluminum alloy, a tribute to its Formula One racing success. Mazda would bring light weight and turbocharged rotary power to its pinnacle with the RX-7. Chevrolet was just putting the finishing touches on its 375-horsepower ZR-1 Corvette. And Nissan? Nissan started the whole ball rolling with its 300ZX. In fact, the current 370Z is a direct descendent of the 300ZX, which was phased out in the mid-1990s. Big boots to fill, indeed, for the 350Z and 370Z, since the 300ZX was the last in a quarter-century-long line of “Z-cars.” When it rolled into dealer showrooms in 1989, it changed perceptions about the capabilities of Japanese automakers: that they were for real and completely capable of building whatever they wanted, from economy runabouts to exotic performance icons. The 300ZX was living, breathing and optionallytwin-turbocharged proof. And it was a serious threat. It looked every bit as exotic as a big-buck German or Italian sporting machine, but at a more down-toearth price. And it could easily keep up with, and frequently outrun, many of them. The introduction of the 300ZX didn’t just take the automotive world by storm, it signaled that the company had finally abandoned the aging 240Z-based shape that had been around since the early 1970s. The original Datsun (a Nissan brand name) Z-car had been a styling and sales triumph when first introduced, proving that a great-looking, greatperforming GT-class car didn’t have to have a sky-high sticker price. The 240Z was replaced by the 260Z in 1974 and the 280Z the following year. Although both appeared similar to the original 240, they were no faster due to the extra weight of their reinforced bumpers and detuned six-cylinder engines, both a result of government safety and air-pollution laws. Both the 260Z and 280Z offered an extended-wheelbase 2+2 version, which carried over to the 280ZX 1983. It might have looked similar

to the previous cars, but it was larger and considerably heavier. It had also lost some of the crisp handling and spunky behaviour of the original. The mid-1980s marked the beginning of the first-generation Nissan 300ZX, a restyled and more powerful successor to the 280ZX. The new model abandoned the previous straight-six engine in favour of a 3.0litre V6 that brought back the power and the passion of the original Z. The only problem was the body design, which continued to emulate previous Z-cars, looked dated. To Nissan’s credit, though, the inaugural version of the 300ZX enjoyed brisk sales in its five years on the market. The dawn of the 1990s heralded the arrival of a second-generation 300ZX, a thoroughly modern styling masterpiece and a radical departure from previous Z/ZX designs. As with the first ZX, the new 300 offered both two-seat and 2+2 stretched body styles. In base form, the V6, equipped with double overhead cams, delivered a respectable 222 horsepower. The twin-turbocharged variant of the 3.0 packed 300 horsepower, which was enough to push the 1,580-kilgram car to 60 mph in a quick-ish 5.5 seconds, 1.3 seconds faster than the non-turbo car, according to Nissan. Either engine could be coupled to a five-speed manual transmission, or optional four-speed automatic. Serious performance fans opted for the manual gearbox since the automatic used smaller turbochargers, which reduced horsepower to 280. Ordering the twin-turbo option also included Super HICAS, Nissan’s four-wheel-steering system. Designed to improve high-speed cornering, this computer-controlled feature turned the rear wheels to a maximum of one degree while the car moved through a turn, gradually straightening out once the maneuver was completed. As good as the 300ZX was, sales of Nissan’s super-fast near-exotic vehicle were simply not strong enough to justify maintaining production. Even the introduction of a convertible model in 1993 was not enough to nudge the 300ZX out of the doldrums and the car was cancelled at the end of the 1996 model year.
